For the safety of our horses and guests, we do not allow double riding. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone. Children ages 5 and older can ride on the trails with us; they will ride their own horse. Children of all ages are welcome at the ranch, however, and can enjoy other amenities while the rest of their group is horseback riding! Children ages 2-4 who cannot ride on the trail with us are offered a short 10-minute corral ride while the rest of their group is riding the trails. The horse will be led by a staff member, but a responsible adult will need to walk alongside the child. While the rest of the group is riding, there are plenty of things for the adult and young child in your group to do to keep occupied. The cost for non-riders is $10 per person. Release forms must be signed by everyone on the ranch whether they are horseback riding or not.
